Wisconsin Lutheran College (WLC) is a liberal arts college affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. It has an enrollment of about 1,000 students. Its nine-building campus sits on the border of Milwaukee and Wauwatosa, with some buildings in each city. Degree programs at Wisconsin Lutheran College are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
The faculty of Wisconsin Lutheran College believes that a Christian undergraduate education based on scholarly activity, engagement with the liberal arts, and practical application of knowledge enlarges students perspectives and prepares them for the various vocations in which God places them. Students at a Christian institution of higher learning have the unique opportunity of learning to view the wonder and order of the universe as part of Gods creation. This coherent perspective of the world is based on an understanding of the biblical narrative, systems of doctrine, church history, and Christian vocation through the hermeneutical lens of the Lutheran Confessions.
In 2009, Wisconsin Lutheran College was ranked 128th of 600 by Forbes on its list of Americas Best Colleges. 29 Majors: Art, Biochemistry, Biology, Broad Field Social Sciences, Business Administration, Chemistry, China Studies, Communication, Communicative Arts, Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Secondary Education, English, Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, German, History, Human Social Services, Interdisciplinary, Mathematics, Media Design, Music, Nursing, Philosophy, Psychology, Spanish, Sport & Exercise Science, Theatre, Theology.
The breadth and depth of knowledge they have gained in a variety of disciplines allows students to inquire with discernment and to reason validly. Moreover, the empirical skills they acquire allow them to engage with the structure, forces, and systems of Gods creation and relate scientific concepts to the phenomena of the physical universe.
The Wisconsin Lutheran College campus consists of the Gary J. Greenfield Administration Building, the Campus Center, the Center for Arts and Performance, the Marvin M. Schwan Library building, the Science Hall (renamed Generac Hall in May 2011), a recreational center, two dormitories, and several apartment buildings near campus owned by the school.
